From the very beginning, your shadow remains a part of you. SCHiM, developed by the duo Ewoud & Nils, answers the question of what happens when your shadow is separated from you. In this 3D platformer, you will take on the role of a shadow, using light and shadows to find your way back to your human. 

The demo from the most recent Steam Next Fest is still available to check out. SCHiM demo has quite a few positive reviews from IGN, Rock Paper Shotgun, and more. What immediately stands out is the world’s color palette. Each level is separated by a core color that reminds me of the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles.

Key features

  • A story of a person losing their shadow – A schim is the soul and spirit of an object or living being. Everything in the world has one, and it should never be separated! You need to find your way back to the human you belong to, before it’s too late!
  • Unique 3D platforming – You can only move in the shadows, so you’ll need to find clever ways to leap into the shadows of animated objects and moving beings to use them as your pathways.
  • A beautiful abstract world – The color palette changes in each level to capture the setting, time of day and mood of every location you explore.
  • Each level has a story to tell – Each new level has its own living scenery with small stories to uncover, inspired by real Dutch/European cities and rural locations.
  • Hidden in the shadows – There are lots of hidden items to discover in SCHiM, and when you find them, you help other schim restore the connection to their thing.

SCHiM is releasing on Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4/5 on July 18, 2024, for $24.99. Make sure to go and check out the demo on Steam and consider adding this title to your wishlist.
